* FunnyAneurysmMoment: In this movie, Murphy plays an African prince who goes to America to find love. In his earlier standup special "Eddie Murphy: Raw", he does a whole bit about going to Africa to find love. Compare both to what really happened.
* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/EddieMurphy talking about the Giants defeating the Packers with a field goal kick, which would happen in the 2007 post-season. Also a FunnyAneurysmMoment for Packers fans.

* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/EddieMurphy Akeem talking about the Giants defeating the Packers with a field goal kick, which would happen in the 2007 post-season. Also a FunnyAneurysmMoment for Packers fans.


Added DiffLines:

* RatedMForMoney: When looked at from end-to-end, the movie really only earns its "R" rating by the bath scene near the start (where the women are topless and are apparently washing the prince's genitals underwater and offscreen) and the swearing (none of which feels absolutely necessary outside of the "good morning" scene). The rest of the movie is by-and-large a rather innocuous love story.

* ValuesResonance: [[SpiritualSuccessor Like]] ''Film/TradingPlaces'', the themes about how wealth, or lack thereof, affects how we perceive ourselves, probably make the movie a bit more poignant in the wake of the Recession.

** Speaking of [=McDowells=], Samuel L. Jackson's sole scene in the movie has him unsuccessfully rob a food establishment; in [[Film/PulpFiction one of his most famous role's]], he thwarts the robbery of a restaurant.
